At Rod Stelter Jeweler, we are enchanted with the finely detailed craftsmanship of Native American silver and turquoise jewelry. On this page we honor the artisans in our collection with photos and information on their silver work. Heritage is important to us and we're proud to offer fine silver turquoise jewelry rich with Native American history.
Navajo Charlie Bowie
This is a stunning example of Mr. Bowie's style with different design elements coming together for an incredible statement cuff. One side is carved with a full profile of a Kachina dancer in ceremonial dress. The tiny serrations that form the textured background are handmade. On he other side are bold, traditional geometric patterns with more hand applied serrations. Mr. Bowie's choice of turquoise with large black matrix compliments the overall design. Note the matrix flows from one stone to another like a complex maze of rivers.
